Academic Discipline Policies

In January 2000, Regis College, and all member Colleges of TST, adopted the University Of Toronto Code Of Academic Behaviour including its definitions of offences and sanctions and the normative process for adjudicating cases. The Code of Academic Behaviour is concerned with the responsibilities of all parties for the integrity of the teaching and learning relationship.

Plagiarism is one such offence. Plagiarism is defined as "represent[ing] as one's own any idea or expression of an idea or work of another in any academic examination, or term test, or in connection with any other form of academic work." Regis students who commit this offence are subject to severe penalties, up to and including expulsion from the College.

Copies of the complete Code are available for reference in the President's Office, the Library and the Faculty/Staff Handbook or through the University of Toronto webpage at: www.artsandscience.utoronto.ca/ofr/calendar/rules.htm#behaviour
